  Bioengineering of innovative functional biomaterials for diagnosis of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. The sensitive and specific diagnosis of Q fever is important for early intervention and for control and management of the disease.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Self-assembled particulate vaccines for prevention of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. For some people, Q fever can affect their health and ability to work for many years.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
  Understanding resistance and tolerance to chytrid fungal disease in amphibians to improve conservation
  Dr L Grogan, Dr DN Newell, Prof H McCallum
Application Deadline: 23 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve working with captive animals (endangered Fleay’s barred frogs and tadpoles) to understand host responses to infection and mechanisms of resistance and tolerance to the devastating fungal disease, frog chytridiomycosis.
  Role of pentraxin and interaction with complement in immune defence against opportunistic infections
  Prof C Garlanda, Prof S Meri
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PTX3 is a soluble pattern recognition molecule which acts as a key component of humoral innate immunity in opportunistic infections of fungal and bacterial origin.
  The human heart in health and disease, one cell at a time
  Dr M Noseda
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

3-year NHLI-funded PhD post – starting October 2019. Applications are invited from candidates with a Master’s degree (Merit and above) in Biomedical Sciences, Immunology or a related discipline, for a 3 year PhD.
  Generation, characterisation and commercialisation of native-restricted and neoepitope-specific monoclonal antibodies directed against the terminal complement protein C7
  Prof R Würzner, Prof Z Prohaszka
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Complement is one of the most important players in innate immune defense. Three activation pathways are triggered by multiple interactions and are amplified in cascades, leading to the activation of the terminal complement (TC) pathway.
  Analysing the skin response to various pollutants, with a focus on immune response by using 3D organotypic cultures generated with human cells
  Dr S Dubrac
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD position builds upon previous work, published by the host Laboratory at the Medical University of Innsbruck (Austria), suggesting a link between pollution and atopic dermatitis (eczema).
  Exercise and nutritional status on metabolic factors, hormonal responses and inflammation in women
  Dr J Allgrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is a major risk factor for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, adverse cardiovascular events and metabolic syndrome-related disorders.
